Today Kira Cochrane of the Guardian fires back against David Willetts, the MP who said a "Bridget Jones generation" was ruining the British family. She calls out Willetts as a flip-flopper; in 2002 he was pro-Bridget, calling her "a Tory at heart." Then she says, "women still earn 17% less for full-time work than men, and, of all groups, mothers face the most discrimination in the workplace. If there's a crisis in the modern family - and I'm not convinced that there is - women's academic excellence isn't to blame any more than Bridget Jones is. The true problem is that equality is still a long way off."
